Taking photos at Olderdissen is a bit more frustrating these days than it used to be. Aik and Rieke prefer staying in the back of the larger enclosure more than the girl-gang did and I feel like the park just likes to keep the fenceline as obstructed with plants (and even visual covers) and the visitors as far away from it as possible. But oh well. I have my ways of overcomming obstacles.

You can use my photos as long as it is not for commercial purpose
(this includes commissions and point commissions, too!). If you want
to use them for photo-manipulations, roleplaying games, avatars, as
drawing references, or private things that's okay with me. You don't
have to note me, but giving credit would be a fair appreciation. And
feel free to show me what you do with my photos, I'd love to see it!
Such a beautiful photograph!
They're probably more concerned about the well-being of the animals than photo ops.
Well, for visitors it's even worse, because they don't have zoom lenses that help them see the animals. For a usual zoo visitor it's gotten reaaally difficult to see the wolves. I mean, it's all cool if they give the animals lots of options to withdraw, but there's a point when you overdo it. It's still a wildlife park. People come to see animals.
Woo, he is looks like a bit melancholy.
Your wolves are always so lovable. I wish I could meet them
You just have to come to Germany, sometime.
I've been there at least three times, and I'd come to Merzig wolf centre
That's awesome! I've never been to Merzig Wolf Centre (other end of Germany) myself, but I know a little bit about it. The late founder Werner Freund was a quite popular wolf researcher.
Aber immer noch so ein Hübscher <3
